Movies to Miss in December

Much like the world of video games, there isn't a whole lot happening for movies in the year's final month.

If you have children you also happen to dislike, by all means, go see the following films. Otherwise, I'm left once again wondering who actually gets paid to make some of these decisions in Hollywood. I want that job. "You want to turn Street Sharks into a film? Brilliant! Here's a million bucks. Make it hot!"

Yogi Bear
There's a very special place in hell for the folks who green-lit this monstrosity. Seriously, folks, we don't need to cash-in on every single cartoon and television show from the 70s and 80s. Some things are best left in the past and, yeah, Yogi is definitely one of them. This looks like a train wreck in slow motion. Do modern kids even know or give a crap about these characters?

Gulliver's Travels
I'm one of those people who usually likes what Jack Black has to offer. Except for this. This looks like poop. I'll give him this freebie under the assumption he's got some bills to pay, even though I'm pretty sure Kung-Fu Panda 2 would have taken care of that...Maybe he was really stoned when he signed on? That's about the only way you'll ever get me to watch this.

"This looks like poop."
Best succinct review ever. You could have stopped there. <3
